Lichterzauber in Manhattan

Eva ist eine hoffnungslose Romantikerin und sieht nur die guten Seiten des Lebens. Kein Wunder, dass sie Weihnachten in New York liebt wie kein anderes Fest im Jahr. Um ihr Konto aufzustocken, tritt die New Yorker Food-Bloggerin eine Stelle bei dem erfolgreichen Horror-Autor Lucas Bale an. Womit sie nicht gerechnet hat: Der grimmige Brite kann die Feiertage nicht ausstehen. Mit Tannenschmuck und Plätzchenduft will Eva ein kleines Weihnachtswunder an ihm wirken - mit mehr als frostigem Ergebnis. Warum nur fühlt sie sich zu ihm hingezogen, obwohl sie unterschiedlicher kaum sein könnten?

 

Meine Meinung:

Ich bin beim Stöbern bei Netgalley auf dieses Buch aufmerksam geworden. Dieses wurde mir dann freundlicherweise von diesen zu Rezensionszwecken zur Verfügung gestellt. 

Der Einstieg in das Buch ist mir sehr leicht gefallen, auch der Schreibstil war schön flüssig. 

Ich habe jetzt bei erst gesehen, dass dies wohl der 3. Teil einer Reihe ist, dies war beim Lesen aber nicht zu merken, so dass ich der Meinung bin, dass man die Bände nicht zwingend hintereinander weg lesen muss. Bei der Vorgängerbänden geht es wohl um ihre Freundinnen Paige und Frankie.

Der Hauptprotagonist Lucas konnte mich von Anfang an begeistern, mit Eva hatte ich anfangs etwas Probleme. 

Ich lese nicht so häufig reine Liebesromane, aber so und ab und an kann es mich schon begeistern. Allerdings muss ich sagen, dass dieser Roman schon auf sehr viele Klischees zurückgegriffen hat, was ich ein wenig schade fand. 

Alles in allem kann ich hier aber eine klare Kauf- und Leseempfehlung aussprechen für alle, die Lust auf eine lockerleichte Liebesgeschichte im Winter haben. Von mir bekommt das Buch 4 Sterne.

The Diamond Empire (A Diamonds Novel) - K'wan

I'm super excited for these reads. It's a good variety. I have very high expectations for A Hope Divided by Alyssa Cole. I will need to read the first book (I do have it) An Extraordinary Union. I read The Diamond Empire last month and loved it! I gave it 4 stars. K'wan knows how to draw you in and keep you there. Moonlight Over Manhattan will be my first read by Sarah Morgan. So many readers love her books. Since I'm familiar with the works of authors Jen Turano and Katherine Reay I know these will be awesome. Over the years I've seen the works of Barbara Taylor Bradford in bookstores and have been curious about her writing. Finally, I can see why she's so beloved. The big book of the month is Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race. This book has been read widely and is being promoted everywhere. Overly hyped books scare me and I usually try to keep them for some time to not be influenced by frenzy.

Holiday in the Hamptons (From Manhattan with Love) - Sarah Morgan

4.5 Stars

 

This was my first book by Sarah Morgan and as such, the first in this series. I had no trouble following along and actually I didn't even remember that it was a series until I started to review the book. In reading the book, I had no idea! Yay!

This was a great beach read, escape story and every entertaining. I loved the bit about the twin sisters, Fliss and Harriet, and how it was hard, if you didn't know them real well, to tell them apart. It reminded me of that "Parent Trap" movie, only a lot more grownup. 

I sped through this book and while the main character, Fliss was going on and on about whether she should give Seth a chance and did she really have any feelings for him, yada yada yada. While some books can drive you crazy with this issue, I think the author handled it beautifully. I did not tire of the story or characters and sped right through.

Thanks to Harlequin, HQN Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Review: Holiday in the Hamptons by Sarah Morgan
Holiday in the Hamptons (From Manhattan with Love) - Sarah Morgan

Fliss and Seth share a history that was left in the past ten years ago. He broke her heart, she broke his, and they walked away from their brief but passionate love. However, now Seth is in Manhattan, working at the vet office Fliss and her twin/business partner, Harriet, frequent with the animals they care for. Since talking to Seth would be too difficult for Fliss, she flees the city only to end up in Seth’s arms. 

 

Right from the start, Holiday in the Hamptons sets the stage perfectly for the emotional journey that is Fliss and Seth, and I fell in love with the idea of Fliss and Seth. Teenage crushes, first loves, broke up for all the wrong reasons. This second-chance romance brings together two people who have always been in love, but lack of communication and some other external issues tore them apart. The opening prologue set the stage for what I knew would be both a heart-wrenching and heart-warming story. I love that their relationship brought readers some of both. This is probably the slowest slow-burn romance I’ve read, but it’s just marvelous. The emotional connections are worth it. 

 

I was concerned with Fliss’s idea of pretending to be her twin, Harriet, as I am not a fan of the mistaken-identity trope. But my worries were for naught, because the author has fun with the situation, yet never lets it get out of hand. I mean… if you are related to someone, can you really fool them by pretending to be another? There are several silly moments, but there is a larger benefit to Fliss’s efforts. When pretending to be Harriet, Fliss doesn’t have to have her walls up, and she can talk to Seth. While they don’t share anything earth-shattering, it creates the foundation for their new friendship, something that wouldn’t have happened without the protection of pretending to be Harriet.

 

Fliss had a rough childhood, and many of her issues with personal connections stem from her upbringing. I admire that the author demonstrates how tough it was through flashbacks and ties it into her difficulties as an adult. I also love that Fliss is a work in progress - committing to changing, and that there is no pretty bow put around her issues. We know there is still work ahead. Which is also why I had a big issue with a very small scene at the end of the book when Seth says something to Fliss that is intended to be sweet and funny; however, with her history, and the care Seth has for her feelings, was the exact wrong thing to say. Most readers will probably gloss over it and never have an issue, but it pulled me right out of the happy moment. It wasn’t a game changer in this otherwise amazing romance, but it did give me pause right near the end of the book.

 

In the end, Holiday in the Hamptons is another wonderful story from the talented Sarah Morgan. She creates characters that I care about - ones I can relate to in some way and I want to befriend. Such is the case of Fliss and Seth. Their second-chance is full of ups and downs, and I enjoyed taking the journey with them.

 

My Rating:  A- Enjoyed A Lot

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

 

 

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder’s brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annual ball. He jokingly calls it “a matter of national security,” but Cinder suspects it’s more serious than he’s letting on. Although eager to impress the prince, Cinder’s intentions are derailed when her younger stepsister, and only human friend, is infected with the fatal plague that’s been devastating Earth for a decade. Blaming Cinder for her daughter’s illness, Cinder’s stepmother volunteers her body for plague research, an “honor” that no one has survived. But it doesn’t take long for the scientists to discover something unusual about their new guinea pig. Something others would kill for.

Kiss My Boots by Harper Sloan

 

 

 

In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….
